Paved, non-motorized trails are being designed and built that will connect our communities to Florida’s state parks, natural landscapes and waterways. These pathways will offer residents and visitors a scenic, safe and healthy transportation alternative to Florida’s crowded and often dangerous highways. Small business opportunities for trail service providers will revitalize Florida’s rural, mid-sized and urban centers. Local festivals and long-distance events will bring travelers from around the United States and the world to experience our unique communities. Young and old, the fully able and those whose mobility is limited, the fit and those seeking fitness will have access to a statewide system of connected trails, greenways and blue ways.
Behind this effort, and committed to the vision underlying the system’s completion, is the Florida Greenways and Trails Foundation (Foundation). The Foundation has provided vision, inspiration and facilitation leading to Florida's system of greenways and trails.
